The Wood choice for Exterior/Outdoor furniture should be able to withstand 
the mositure, heat and other elements.

It is therefore preferred that you also look at non wooden furniture readymade available.
In case you still want wooden furniture the wood should be hard, termite resistant and properly protected by Paint or PU polish.

As mentioned by Jaiprakash, the best outdoor wood is Teak and then Eucalyptus. One needs wood that is Oily and is dimensionally stable and crack resistant to the outdoor sun, rain and cold weather. Teak is generally used in western countries for boat construction.

One needs to also do outdoor topcoat if you are staining (polishing) of the wood. Exterior grade Varnish is the best with about 2-3 coats to withstand the weather.

For paint, you exterior primer and then paint with a good quality exterior grade paint. If you want extra protection you can go for epoxy paints (industrial grade paints), but they cost a lot.
